1st Baby Shower!

Last night we enjoyed attending our first baby shower! It was a couple's shower with all of our friends and immediate family - so it was a blast. The weather couldn't have been better, and we all were able to soak up what was left of the beautiful day at Brian & Shannon's. It was hosted by Shannon and friends Sara Beauchamp, Jennifer Cousins, Andrea Fant (who wasn't able to make it) and the newly married, Karen Smith.

After dinner, the girls all sampled ten different baby foods and tried to guess what it was. However, what was much more of a crowd pleaser was watching the men race to powder, wipe and diaper a baby. The two grandpas competed, and Poppy (my father) put the diaper on backwards, while Papa (Steve's father) took his time and got it on right. However, it was Uncle Dan who won with a 28 second time (so we know who we'll be asking to babysit).

Lastly, we opened our gifts - and boy (or should I say girl?) was everyone extremely generous! We received so many awesome items for Baby Miz: our crib, both strollers, our highchair, the swing, the monitor and plenty of other items for the baby to wear and enjoy over the next several months! Surprisingly, we only got one Alabama themed gift...

Today, we spent some time getting everything put together and organized. It is hard to imagine that we only have another 1.5 months to go before we will be utilizing these items.
